MOOC Help and FAQs

 

Registering for a MOOC

When can I enroll for a MOOC?

You can enroll for a MOOC on the day the course opens. There will no longer be registration in advance. Once you enroll, you jump right in.

The course has already started and I would like to enroll. Can I enroll late?

Yes, you can enroll after the start day. You may need to spend extra time to catch up in the course, and it’s possible that you will have fewer responses to your discussion posts because other students are ahead of you.

How do I un-enroll if I decided not to take this course right now?

If this course is not an option for you at this time, simply stop logging in and consider enrolling again when the course is next offered.
